Dysphagia has landed me in this waiting room again,
throat spasms have become too much to handle.
I was left eating small meals that were more like snacks,
Chew, Swallow, Chew, Swallow Chew, Swallow, chew,
Sounds easy doesn’t it? Everyone I know can,
For me it’s a bit more of a drawn out process.
Mixing small bites with ice chips and a drink,
It’s been years since I’ve enjoyed any meat.
For me this unrelenting fight is a neurological one,
Thanks to a T.B.I and some faulty wiring of sorts.
Today I’ll be given a break from all this madness,
We’ll turn my dysphagia into a dull roar for awhile.
